the software to actually use that power. now that they're getting calls, if you don't change your software it will go slower. so the software has to take advantage of being able to spread the problem out over all those different computers and that makes it sound and feel a little bit like a cloud. so for an animation studio like dreamworks, we use thousands of computers and data centers to actually make those individual images. what we're doing now is sort of bringing those thousands of computers into the desk, if you like, of a single animator. >> what does that do for the animator? >> one of the biggest things when they moved from drawing on paper from pens and pencils, their natural skill turned from sort of a physical activity to key worlds, mice and something like that. so the interaction became very difficult. they became more like engineers. with all of this power, we're starting to give them back the fluid approach to expressing their craft. putting a pen back in their hand. of course a digital tablet or digital screen, but it gives them a smooth way of making the characters perfor
